Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry will return to the lineup vs. Miami Heat

The Toronto Raptors will get their All-Star point guard back for tonight's matchup against the Miami Heat.

Kyle Lowry missed the last 11 games with a fracture in his left thumb but is set to retake his place in the Raptors starting lineup, head coach Nick Nurse told the media pregame.

Toronto went 9-2 in the absence of their floor general and are currently riding a seven-game winning streak, leading to a 15-4 record - good for second-best in the Eastern Conference.

In the first seven games of the season, Lowry was rolling with averages of 24.0 points, 6.7 assists, 4.6 rebounds and 1.1 steals on 48.1% shooting from the field and 42.9% 3-point range, helping the Raptors get out to a 5-2 start.

This will be the first game Toronto plays with both Lowry and Serge Ibaka in the lineup since Nov. 8, when the two veterans each suffered injuries that caused them to miss time.
